    Wine Install


    I am trying to install wine on a RHEL 6.1 64 bit os.

    When i try running "yum install wine" it does not find the package.

    I have tried installing the binary but I get so many missing dependancies.

    Does anyone else have a solution?

    Thanks

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Do you have the epel repository installed? That is where you will find Wine and all the other components it needs.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Hi
    You can install wine rpm from third-party EPEL or RPMforge/RPMforge Testing repositories.
    1. Add repository;
    2. Install wine rpm:
    Code:
    # yum install wine

  4. $spacer_open
    $spacer_close

    Instructions for either repo are easy to find, but here's a two-step for EPEL, which is marginally safer if you don't need the broader range of packages in RPMFusion AND you have Red Hat support (RHN).

    su -c 'rpm -ivh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pu...6-5.noarch.rpm'
    su -c 'rpm --import https://fedoraproject.org/static/217521F6.txt'

    You also need to log into RHN and enable the 'Optional' channel for this system, for dependencies.
